It is Flu Season!!  Below is some information that has been provided by the Genesee Health Department (www.gchd.us) or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (www.cdc.gov).

Symptoms - Fever (usually 100.5 F to 103.5 F in adults and often even higher in children), Cough, Sore throat, Runny or stuffy nose, Headache and muscle ache, and Extreme fatigue.  Most people who get the flu recover completely in 1-2 weeks, but some people develop serious life threatening medical complications, such as pneumonia. 

How is it spread - Viruses that cause flu are spread by direct contact with respiratory droplets (i.e., coughing and sneezing).  Flu viruses enter the body through the mucous membranes of the eyes, nose, or mouth.  Those at highest risk for infection live in populated areas, crowded living situations, and in schools.

What is the treatment? Get plenty of rest, drink plenty of fluids to prevent dehydration (i.e., water, juice, and tea), and take non-aspirin medication for fever and body aches.

How to prevent?  The best way to prevent influenza is to get vaccinated against it.  Additional prevention measures include: Wash hands frequently, especially after coughing, sneezing, and handling used tissues, avoid close contact with those who have cold or flu-like symptoms, and after contact with a person who is ill, wash your hands, and keep your fingers away from your eyes, nose, and mouth to prevent the spread of the virus.

We will include this information in future newsletters and it will also be provided at the front desk in the CMS Main Office.
